The site is located on Christiansholm island (also known as Paper Island), an artificial island known for its large number of former paper-storage warehouses. A competition to create a new masterplan for the island was won by COBE in February of last year.

Finalist teams will have until June 2nd to submit their proposals for the aquatic center. The competition winner is expected to be announced in December.
